Isabel Perceval: Lives in Limbo

Produced by fund recipient Isabel Perceval and reported by Eithne O’Brien, this Prime Time documentary revisits Ballaghaderreen a year after it was announced they were to host refugees from Syria. They followed two of the newly arrived refugees over the year as they tried to settle into Ireland and learnt about their journeys from Syria and the families they had left behind. Following this, they then travelled to Beirut, Lebanon to meet one of the refugee’s mothers who told of her ongoing difficulties of life in Syria and the pain of having her family torn apart by the war.
